Dakota Heartstrings
My North Dakota Diary
Bowman County
'Bowman County -- "The Rancher's Paradise," as Bowman county was for so many years known, was named in memory of Hon. E. M. Bowman, a member of the territorial assembly of Dakota of 1883. The county was organized in June, 1907. Lignite coal is found in great abundance, and can in many cases be had for the digging. The county has a permanent agricultural standing and is adapted for the cultivation of all northern grown cereals, and garden vegetables. The county seat is Bowman.'
